Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

I agree with the fact that 2026 Commonwealth Games may not be the best fit for Adelaide because of the cost, shorter timeframe and infrastructure projects that will not be completed by then. And I think I'll wait for the Queensland government’s decision on whether Brisbane would bid for the 2032 Oly...

Re: News & Discussion: Adelaide Airport & Airlines

The increase in population and the demand for travel as well as technological advancements mean we need to work really hard to attract international flights to Adelaide. Maybe within the next 5 to 10 years, when we have ultra long haul aircraft, we could have non-stop flights from Adelaide to a numb...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Why would we split up the potential CBD sports precinct by moving the Tennis out to what is effectively the middle of nowhere as far as public transport and hospitality/retail is concerned instead of moving the Netball to Memorial Drive? As far as I'm concerned, there is a lack of room to expand th...

[VIS] Re: Memorial Drive upgrade

Longer term, I think tennis should be relocated from Memorial Drive to a site combined with the existing netball centre at Mile End to create a new state netball and tennis centre, it has the potential to offer larger space and it would also be close to other existing and potential new sports facili...

Here's the map that I've drawn about a possible route for a freeway connection (in green) between North-South Motorway and South East Freeway, along with a possible rail alignment (in blue) through the Adelaide Hills. The underground sections are represented by broken lines.

Re: Beer Garden

Adelaide definitely needs a world-class rectangular stadium. No ifs or buts. I think most here on this forum agree. The location could be the SA Athletics Stadium, but it would be sad to see that go as many use it including schools. I think the best bet is the netball stadium next door. Raise that ...

Re: Beer Garden

Just a quick remark. The Commonwealth Games will only attract people from a limited number of countries. Most of these know about Australia and perhaps to a lesser degree Adelaide. What we want are international events on a continuous basis that will attract people from all over the world. These do...

Re: Beer Garden

What a shame that Adelaide will most likely miss out on a chance to be part of the FIFA Women's World Cup bid by Australia! When cities such as Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Canberra and even regional cities which may include Townsville, Gold Coast, Newcastle and Geelong are part of the bid. T...

Disneyland Adelaide

For a long time, we have been calling on leaders to do something to attract young people to Adelaide and South Australia! Thankfully, I have a great idea on how this can be achieved! By building a new Disneyland theme park on the fringes of Adelaide! If approved, Disneyland Adelaide will be built at...

Re: Commonwealth Games in Adelaide

I think the next mega sporting event Adelaide should bid for is the 2036 Olympic Games rather than 2026 Commonwealth Games. If we choose to host the 2026 Commonwealth Games, it’s going to be too much of a rush to get things done in 7 years. The North South Corridor (a key congestion busting project ...

Re: 2036 Olympic Games bid for Adelaide

To make Adelaide Oval an Olympics suitable stadium would involve tearing it down and starting over. Adelaide Oval will just need to extend or rebuild its Western Stand to increase the capacity to 60000 people, then it will be all ready to go for an Olympic Games. And given there are already a numbe...

Re: 2036 Olympic Games bid for Adelaide

Kudos for big thinking, but don't waste your energy on fantasy. Australia is currently backing Brisbane for our 3rd Olympics (hoping for 2032), and I would expect Melbourne to get another go after then before any other city (by which point, it'll again be our largest city). Maybe next century Adela...
